Thoughts and Prayers

“Thoughts and prayers.” Oh how heartfelt. I would imagine our legislators in the house and senate have programmed a key on their cell phones to immediately text that out when the next school shooting occurs. It certainly reduces the hurt, sorrow, loss for those whose children they’ll never play with again; laugh with again; watch playing sports; or hug on their birthdays. Going beyond “thoughts and prayers” our sociopathic President lamented, “We grieve for the terrible loss of life and send our support to everyone affected by this absolutely horrific attack.” Oh my, that almost brings tears to my eyes. Unfortunately, this expression of grief followed his pledge to the NRA earlier this month that “the second amendment will never ever be under siege as long as I am your president.”
Isn’t it about time we quit applying 18th century laws to 21st century weapons? We stopped doing that with automobiles years ago. Oh yes, I forgot…the 2nd Amendment was ordained by God!
Such a sick society, I’m ashamed to be part of it.
